Amoudara attractions

Amoudara is a popular beach resort just outside Heraklion in Crete, Amoudara is the perfect choice for those who want to combine a visit to Crete's historical attractions with some time to relax and get away from it all. Here's our guide to the top Amoudara attractions.

Wind down in Amoudara

The meaning of Amoudara is “the huge sand”, and it is an accurate name since the beach unrolls as far as the eye can see. Its sunny shores fade into the distance and run alongside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea. The beach has been awarded the EU Blue Flag in recognition of its clean waters and it offers many water-sport activities to those bored of sunbathing, with windsurfing being particularly popular. If you are spending your days relaxing on the beach, the promenade is packed with shops, bars, cafés, restaurants and the local kafeneons – so you won’t have to go very far for that cold drink or snack. If you are feeling particularly lazy while enjoying the sun in Greece, why not simply order a refreshing cocktail from one of the beach-edge tavernas, and let them bring it over to your sun-lounger.

Exploring Amoudara

Apart from the beach, Amoudara is a convenient base from which to explore the west and east sides of Crete. Close to it is the beach of Karteros, where experienced and amateur riders can experience horseback riding on the edge of the coastline. The archaeological site of Tylissos is also nearby, which features the excavated remains of an early Minoan town. Other neighbouring villages include Rogdia, Gazi and Archanes, the last of which is a beautifully restored settlement with paved walkways leading into pretty courtyards, where you can relax over a cup of Greek coffee or some ouzo on your Amoudara holiday. Last but not least is the capital Heraklion, which is ideal for a daytrip.
